Shopify has simplified the process of starting online shops or what we call eCommerce stores.
Shopify is one of the most recommended platforms for eCommerce and starting online shops.
With a complete eCommerce toolkit and ever-growing features, it’s not surprising that Shopify has been one of the most recommended platforms for eCommerce and starting online shops.
Shopify generally provides 14 days free trial (90 Days Free Trial currently) and you can try all Shopify features during that period and decide if the platform is suitable for your needs.
Shopify 90 Day Free Trial
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Shopify is helping business owners by offering 90 days free trial. Take this opportunity to get your business online.
You don’t need any credit card details for the free trial and you can contact their support during this period to help you shape your store.

Shopify with WordPress blog?
Compared to an alternative of the WooCommerce in the WordPress ecosystem, Shopify has also focused lately in integrating with WordPress.
For those looking to use Shopify in combination with your WordPress website or blog, please follow this complete guide on integrating Shopify and WordPress.
With WordPress, Shopify mostly works as a complementary plugin, one that lets you add e-commerce features to your store.
An ideal situation would be where you already have a WordPress website or blog and want to add a Shop page with products that you want to sell on the side.
Although Shopify has its own blogging capabilities, many users prefer to keep their content on CMS like WordPress and only use Shopify for what it's best for!
Shopify Free Trial
Shopify used to provide different trial periods depending on the link you use to signup for the trial period. All such links no longer work and redirect you to the 14-days free trial page.
You can get started with a Free Shopify Trial for 90 days using this link.
How To extend Shopify Free Trial?
There aren't any specific ways to extend Shopify free trial once you have started the free trial already.
Shopify provides very limited promotional offers. You can hardly find any Shopify coupon codes offering big promotions.
Besides, Shopify seems to have disabled all the individual promo codes allowing longer trials that it had issued to several influencers and brands.
You can choose to start a new test Shopify store with a free trial option using the form above on this page.
Another option could be contacting Shopify customer service team. Once you're near to expiry of your 90-days-trial, contact Shopify’s customer service and request them to extend your trial.
Shopify has an amazing support team and they usually honour the request of their users asking for an extension.
This has worked for several Shopify beginners – so go ahead and be nice to the support team and ask them for an extension.
Shopify Free Trial Store FAQs
We receive a lot of questions from our clients and users regarding Shopify development from this page. Please refer to this Shopify store FAQs and see if your question has been answered already.
What are Shopify development stores?
Shopify allows its partners to create development stores within the partner’s portal. These development stores are for development partners to take as much time as they want to make the store ready for their clients.
Shopify Partners are digital marketing agencies or developers who have applied and approved for the partnership program of Shopify. We provide the development stores for our clients in partnership with a Shopify partner Agency.
Shopify usually provides a 14-day trial (currently 90 days) on all of their subscription plans. You will need to choose one of the subscription plans to keep your Shopify store active after that trial period.
There’s no way to convert your existing Shopify store into a development store. Your development partner can, however, transfer the content manually to a development store and take more time until you are ready to launch your store.
There are certain limitations with development stores in terms of paid themes and apps that you can install during the development phase. Also, once your store is ready, you have the option for 50 test orders, after which you will have to choose a subscription plan and start paying for the store.
We offer Shopify free trial stores to our clients and help them get started with Shopify. Please contact us if you need any further information.
If you still don’t find your answer here, please feel free to contact us and we can guide you accordingly.
